The RDK-877 reference design describes an isolated flyback converter which provides a nominal output voltage of 12 V at 0.5 A load from a wide input-voltage range of 90 V to 305 V ac, as well as an isolated zero-crossing detection signal. 

This power supply uses the LNK3306D from the LinkSwitch-TNZ family of ICs. The kit contains the complete power-supply specifications, bill-of-materials, transformer construction, circuit schematic and PCB layout, along with performance data and electrical waveforms.

The RDK-866 reference design describes a non-isolated buck converter power supply with an input-line zero-crossing detection output signal. The nominal output is 5 V/500 mA across the input range of 90 V to 300 V ac. 

The system is powered by the LinkSwitch-TNZ IC controller. The LinkSwitch-TNZ family of ICs combines power conversion with lossless generation of an ac zero-crossing signal used typically for system clock and timing functions. The device incorporates a 725 V power MOSFET, oscillator, a high-voltage switched current source for self-biasing, frequency jittering, fast (cycle-by-cycle) current limit, hysteretic thermal shutdown, and output and input overvoltage protection circuitry in a monolithic IC. 

Designs using the highly integrated LinkSwitch-TNZ ICs are more flexible than discrete implementations, reducing component count by 40% or more. The key design goal is low cost, low audible noise and compact form factor for use in wireless and relay power supplies.

New 900 V GaN-based flyback switcher ICs increase power and efficiency

New InnoSwitch3™ ICs from Power Integrations feature robust and efficient PowiGaNgallium nitride switches, for industrial applications and for 400 V automotive auxiliary power supplies, supporting loads of up to 100 W.

The RDK-919Q is a development board for the INN3949CQ, a member of the InnoSwitch3-AQ family of power conversion ICs. Operating from an input-voltage range of 50 V to 1000 V dc, ideal for use in 800 V bus systems, the board provides an isolated power supply for loads of up to 60 W, at an output voltage of 24 V. Conversion efficiency is 82%. 

The RDK-919Q works in hot conditions: at 85°C, it can provide a continuous 20 W output with an input at 1,000 V dc. 

The board offers all the benefits of secondary-side control with the simplicity of primary-side regulation: it is insensitive to transformer variation, and provides extremely fast transient response which is independent of load timing. The maximum output ripple voltage is 240 mV.


Integrated flyback controller IC offers high efficiency in appliance power supplies

The Power Integrations InnoSwitch™3-TN enables tight constant-current and constant-voltage regulation without the requirement for any external feedback components, simplifying power-supply designs and saving board space.
